Mary-Louise Parker to Star Off Broadway in ‘Heisenberg’

Mary-Louise Parker will return to the New York stage in “Heisenberg,” the world premiere of a new play by Simon Stephens (“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”) at Manhattan Theater Club.

The production reunites Parker with MTC, where she starred in “Proof” and won a Tony for that production’s Broadway transfer. In “Heisenberg” she’ll co-star with Kenneth Welsh in a production directed by Mark Brokaw (“Cinderella,” “How I Learned to Drive”) and playing in MTC’s smallest venue, the Studio at Stage II.

U.K. playwright Stephens is having something of a moment in New York, with “Curious Incident” turning into one of the Broadway season’s fall successes and his play “Punk Rock” getting a stint Off Broadway earlier this season.

The storyline of “Heisenberg” chronicles what happens after a woman catches sight of an older man in a train station and, out of the blue, kisses him on the neck. The play was commissioned by MTC, which has been attracting crowds to its Broadway venue lately with the well-received staging of “Constellations” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson.

“Heisenberg” will play a six-week run that begins previews May 19 and opens June 3.
